No headway in rescue of ship stuck near Karachi coast
A ship of Hong Kong Shipping Line has not been provided rescue services on the second consecutive day and the vessel is still stranded near the Karachi coast, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.
According to the Karachi Port Trust, the vessel, named Heng Tong 77, had departed from the port earlier and its engine started to falter soon after. The high tides pushed it towards the coast, a few kilometres away from Seaview.
KPT says the responsibility to save the ship lies on the owner and in case of any environmental hazard the only owner will be responsible.
